Grizzly Bear - While You Wait for the Others
Grizzly Bear is a Brooklyn-based indie rock band, comprising Daniel Rossen (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Ed Droste (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Chris Taylor (bass, backing vocals, various instruments, producer) and Christopher Bear (drums, backing vocals). The band mixes traditional and electronic instruments so their sound its experimental mixes of folk rock and psychedelic pop, with vocal harmonies and acoustic guitars. Yesterday they played at Debaser in Stockholm, wasn't there so no review from the gig, but i guess it was great, they usually sounds good live.
Todays tune "While You Wait for the Others," from Grizzly Bear's latest record 'Veckatimest.' Directed by Sean Pecknold, brother of Fleet Foxes' Robin Pecknold. Enjoy!
B-Side on this single:
Michael McDonald, of the Doobie Brothers, performs lead vocals on the single's b-side - the same track with the lead vocals replaced by McDonald's. McDonald states that Grizzly Bear's songs are "alluring and interesting. So when they mentioned to me about doing this, I said absolutely."
